    Hi Matt. I notice that there is a lot less stones on the graves pictured here than in previous pictures you’ve taken in Jewish cemeteries. Are they older graves that get less visitors perhaps?

    • Matt Green says:

      It’s actually not too uncommon to see graves without stones on them. (Here’s an example from Mt. Zion Cemetery.) It looks like many of the people above died in the 1950s and ’60s, so it would make sense that they don’t get many visitors anymore. But even people who died more recently may not have many family members or friends in the area to visit them.

      • Aussie Brad says:

        Looking at the other photo it appears as though the graves are from a similar period, perhaps even older. Time moves on and people become faded memories is suppose.
